Getting Ready for the Week

In preparation for the busy week it seemed like a good idea to pre -make some meals that can be taken out of the freezer and popped into the oven for dinner. One of the easiest ones for me, being the Italian girl that I am, is Lasagna.


1 pk lasagna noodles cooked

For the filling:
2 eggs, beaten
1 pint ricotta cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper
Fresh Parsley chopped
(mix together all ingredients listed above for filling)

1 pound mozzarella cheese, shredded

pasta sauce of your choice ( I make my own)

To Layer:
Put a little sauce on the bottom of the 9x13 inch baking dish you will be using
Layer 1/3 of the lasagna noodles in the bottom
First, cover noodles with 1/2 ricotta mixture
Then add 1/2 of the mozzarella cheese
and 1/3 of the sauce.
Top the lasagna with remaining noodles and sauce.

Sprinkle additional Parmesan cheese over the top.

Lasagna is my comfort food. I love coming home after a long day and sitting down to

a home-made lasagna dinner.
